Its been slow but trying to do as much myself as well to try and save money . I asked the panel beater the same question about the 1/4 he said he can get the join there to be perfect without having to melt the lead and unpick the original join . I think this was just easier for him . I trusted him and so far the quality of work has been very good after he butt welded the joint it has come up really nice .

Yeah, they were lead filled from factory. I wanted to have mine lead filled again after my new 1/4s were fitted and was basically talked out of it because of how hard lead filling is to do these days (find experinced people and EPA getting in the way of obtaining quality lead -apparently), the cost involved and that the modern fillers are of extremely high quality.
This was my panel guy talking, and although I wanted to insist on doing it at per OE, I had to respect his knowledge and experience. I don't think he would have minded taking more money off me, but instead he chose his honest advice.

What brand 1/4s? Were they an easy fit?

My panel beater works on all new cars mainly and thats apparently how they do them so i just had to trust him bit like you. All the panels were goodmark they did need alot of work to get them to fit correctly one of the hardest bit was the inner wheel wheels all up about 80 hours work on the rear including straiting the rear rails .

I'm going with a silver/grey for mine, just enough that it can be seen, but not scream look at me. Should match the rest of the g-link too

The silver shows the detail of the rear end structure but I have never been one for decorative undercarriage.
I prefer black for under car and keep the bling for wheels/trim/paint . Just my opinion

Me too. Nothing worse than being distracted from a nice body by some abstract thing under a car. No prizes for me suggesting OE GM Satin Black.

I guess it all depends on whether you want to attract attention to it, in order to show it off. If it's Pro Touring, bright silver!

Go silver / grey Stuart, O no wait, it's got to be OEM, don't put the wheels or anything else on Stuart, the OEM god has spoken.

My vote is still for a silver Grey mate, a little more grey than silver for me - thinking about going the same way for the subframe as well - still not sure.

I had a small set back with my diff, long story, but it seems CA ( Chris Alston ) had some issues with the manufacturing of the diff due to my existing brake package ( pre 2010 Baer bearing retainers with small bearings ) the diff is now ready, along with a new set of post 2010 bearing retainers and late model Torino bearings. A bit frustrating, but i'm getting there and this set up will be much stouter. I'll Hhopelly have all the gear early August

Cheers,

lyndsay
